The WFCS is the largest IEEE conference especially dedicated to communications for industrial automation systems. Its aim is to provide a forum for researchers, developers and practitioners to review and discuss the most recent trends in this area.
The paper authored by Miguel Gutiérrez Gaitán, Luís Almeida, Alejandro Figueroa and Diego Dujovne, presents novel ideas to improve (by design) the schedulability of real-time TSCH networks, a highly-relevant topic within the communication for automation domain. The approach presented was recognized with great potential to be extended beyond the wireless networks field, e.g. to areas including (but not limited to) software-defined networking and time-sensitive networking.
